Recipe by Rainberry Blues

This is not an authentic Mexican recipe; it's just something I concocted one evening when I was in the mood for something different. It turned out so well that I immediately wrote down exactly what I'd put into it. I like it spicy, but if you don't, decrease the amount of chili powder, dried peppers, and tabasco.
